Following its online reveal a week ago, the Mazda2 Sedan has made its public debut at the Thailand International Motor Expo.
Scheduled to go on sale next year in Thailand, the new Mazda2 Sedan is an appealing subcompact sedan with a design largely carried over from its two bigger and more expensive brothers, the 3 and 6. Due to the reduced dimensions, it doesn't look as refined but it's still an interesting offer in this segment where cars usually look cheap.
Mazda Thailand is already taking orders for the model which will be powered exclusively by a SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter diesel developing 105 HP (77 kW) and a maximum torque of 220 Nm (162 lb-ft). The engine benefits from an i-stop function and i-ELOOP technology capable of using electricity from regenerative braking to power the air conditioning system as well as other assemblies inside.
Since we mentioned the cabin, it hosts Mazda's next-gen MZD Connect infotainment system, an active driving display and dual airbags. The 2 Sedan is also equipped with a dynamic stability control system and it represents the first model officially approved for the Phase II of the Thailand Eco Car program in which eligible cars must have a fuel consumption of up to 4.3 liters / 100 km and CO2 emissions that don't exceed 100 g/km.
